Did anybody see this?   Florida-based AirTran airways is under fire for the swimsuit clad by-products of its alliance with Sports Illustrated. The picture of a swimsuit model on the side of one of their AirTran’s Boeing 737s has their flight attendants, citing moral folly, upset.

“It is our feeling that this is not only contrary to the family image that this company tries to promote, but also potentially offensive to their female employees, the majority of their flight attendants who will have to work on this aircraft,” AirTran’s Association of Flight Attendants objected, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Additionally, the AFA suggested the image of the girl in the swimsuit “creates a potential for verbal abuse by male passengers.”

I love what AirTran had to say; and it does make sense:  AirTran has simply said that the partnership is ending soon anyway, so when that happens, problem solved.

Love their answer … personally, I see nothing wrong with the photo.  She’s pretty covered up … I’ve seen worse on the beach or even … MTV.
